Gun enthusiasts are always urged to take good care of their guns and to prevent unauthorized access and use. While both of these can be achieved using a standard gun safe, it is also quite important to consider fire resistant gun safes.
Fire outbreaks are quite common and in case a gun safe is caught in one, the ammunition and the firearms should be protected till the fire can be extinguished. When looking to purchase a fireproof safe, make sure to check the reliability of the safe, which is usually mentioned in the specifications as to whether the safe meets safety regulations and also the limit of resistance of the safe to fire.
Typical things to consider in a fireproof safe include the following:
- The fire endurance rating of the safe
- The type of insulation from fire
- The thickness of the fire insulation
Fireproof gun safes are typically secure and most of them need to be clamped down to the floor. While these fire resistant safes were more expensive in the past, there are a number of budget friendly and affordable safes in the market today. Beginner models can start off at a price of less than $200 while the high end models reach the $1000 mark.
